THE ART OF YOGA: LIGHT
Saturday, June 7, from 8 to 11 AM
The Mansfield Art Center

The disciplines of art and yoga share much in common: clear-eyed vision, an exploration of the creative impulse, and a deep sensitivity to all of life. Through The Yoga of Art, we'll explore these themes both on our yoga mats and in the art studio, considering how movement, breath and meditation can fuel and enliven the creative impulse that lies within each of us. In this session, we'll explore images of light and color, first through a guided yoga class and then through time in the art studio working with fused glass. Make a sun catcher, a coaster, or another form of light-fueled art, inspired and enriched by visions that emerge from within. No previous yoga or art experience required!
